Resort Details

The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi unfolds over 52 acres of natural perfection, a world away from the everyday, yet just a 45-minute awe-inspiring seaplane ride from the capital, Malé. Warm crystal-clear waters wait to embrace you. Soft sands call you to kick off your shoes.

Iru Fushi is located in the northernmost reaches of the Maldivian archipelago, at the heart of Noonu Atoll. Noonu is a community of islands, each with its own distinct allure – a hidden cove here, a lush grove of palm trees there, a lagoon seemingly made just for you. Still others are dotted with villages where traditional ways of life are still proudly preserved, waiting to enchant.

We know that you will be eager to start your holiday from the moment you arrive at Malé, which is why we make the journey as smooth as the waters of our lagoon. While waiting for your seaplane, enjoy a refreshing welcome drink at our private seaplane lounge. Then, once your breathtakingly scenic flight comes to an end and you glide gently toward our arrival jetty, you will see your island host waiting with a smile to take you to your own private haven in our little piece of paradise.

Villas / Room Categories

Beach Villa from $399

Inspired by nature, enveloping. Shaded havens open onto pristine stretches of powdery beach, the lagoon and its delights waiting patiently. Strolling at sunrise along the water’s edge, the sky blushing deep rose. Laying in the shallows to bask in pure sunlight, waves gently caressing, schools of fish teasing. Feeling that life was always meant to be like this – savouring each moment.

Cool open spaces, touches of the contemporary with clean lines. Black and white framing natural hues, a splash of colour and flashing glimpses of the brilliant lagoon. The Sun Siyam’s rounded thatched villas are soothingly simple sanctuaries discreetly equipped with modern luxuries including flat-screen TVs, Bose sound systems, Wi-Fi and Nespresso machines.

Slide open the bedroom doors to reveal a private covered terrace, the plush daybed inviting, sea breeze cooling, water just beyond the palm fronds. Beyond the walk-in wardrobe at the back of the villa, discover your very own al fresco bathing area, with double vanity, indoor and outdoor rain shower, signature spa tub overlooking the sundeck, canopied daybed and a natural background of foliage.

Deluxe Beach Villa from $

Beyond the terrace a sandy thatched sala awaits, a backdrop of lapping waves, the occasional encounter with a foraging Maldivian water-hen, and the bliss of island peace.

Sunrise Deluxe Beach Villa from $

Wake up before the rest of the island to take in the soul-lifting sunrise from your private sala, before retreating to your villa now bathed in soft dappling sunlight.

Pool Beach Villa from $

Wandering along palm-fringed sandy paths, children running ahead as they pick up the trail of a Hoopoe or hermit crab, hoping for an up-close encounter. Taking a solitary dip in the privacy of your pool, the rays warm as you raise your face to the sun. Laughter-filled evenings dining on the beach or in your sala, an array of exciting cuisines to discover. Enjoying the simple pleasures of island life.

Ideal for a family with small children, the Pool Beach Suite can be divided into bedroom and separate living area, with the private pool accessible only through the bedroom. An outdoor covered terrace with plush daybed overlooks your private sala, perfect for taking in the island’s beauty and only steps away from the beach. The outdoor bathroom with double vanity, indoor and outdoor rain shower and spa tub also features a canopied daybed raised just above the pool’s edge, magically romantic and peaceful in the evening candlelight. 

Water Villas from $

Lapping waves, gentle, beckoning. Opening your eyes to the brilliance of the cerulean lagoon, a smile, up and out – pausing just long enough to delight in the school of clownfish below – before emerging onto your private deck, wood underfoot just warming from the morning’s rays. Ocean awakening, breeze refreshing. Every day an invitation to lose yourself in nature’s magnificence.

An experience quintessentially Maldives, The Sun Siyam’s Water Villas spread like palm fronds across the island’s lagoon, overwater havens that in each moment showcase the allure of ocean life.

Airy, open-plan living and a natural palette blend perfectly into ocean views from the king-sized bed, lounging area and expansive sun deck. Spacious bathrooms offer a double vanity, open-air overwater shower, and spa tub designed for long soaks with mesmerising panoramas that are yours alone. Spend lazy days snacking on Maldivian sweets and lounging on your private sundeck, in between cooling exploratory dips into the clear lagoon directly 

Horizon Water Villa from $

Take in uninterrupted ocean views – the lagoon deepening from brilliant turquoise to endless sapphire – from your luxurious overwater Jacuzzi out on the deck. 

Sunset Horizon Water Villa from $

The setting sun plays on the surface of the ocean, dappling, dancing, the sky an electric palette of violets and ochre. Soon stars start to twinkle in the otherwise still night, you warm in your bubbling Jacuzzi overlooking the waters, champagne flute in hand. 

Infinity Water Villa from $

A few steps from island to overwater, doors opening to reveal a panorama of ocean. Little skips across the sundeck, followed by squeals of delight as the children climb into the clear, calm lagoon, discovering new wonders throughout the day. Basking in tropical rays in your lava-stone infinity pool, and then the cool of inside. Space to be alone, spaces to be shared. Your world to enjoy.

With only five Infinity Water Suites at the resort, indulge in spacious accommodation with a master bedroom and separate living areas. Bathe al fresco with a standalone spa tub facing the ocean and an overwater shower as well as indoor rain shower. Sliding doors from the bedroom, living room and bathroom open onto a multi-tiered sundeck and private infinity pool reaching out over the lagoon and beyond. In one corner a shaded sala invites quiet moments, while a small dining area allows you to enjoy the intimacy of In-Villa Dining. 

Hidden Retreat from $

Tranquillity fills the air. A sprawling retreat obscured by a lush, manicured jungle. The luxury of absolute privacy. Taking a refreshing dip in the pool. Your wandering eye catching dazzling hues of emerald at every turn. Beckoning others to join you as you revel in pure seclusion, bliss to be shared. Discovering a wealth of new flavours poolside, a sumptuous dinner lit by the setting sun, warm oranges aglow. Seeing the evening in with exotic cocktails in hand, carefree laughter as you welcome midnight, a blanket of twinkling stars over your verdant haven.

A calm and peaceful hideaway surrounded by a stunning landscaped courtyard, the Hidden Retreat offers the ultimate holiday escape. Delight in expansive tropical greenery, obscuring your haven’s two spacious bedrooms, both of which boast their own en-suite bathroom, complete with refreshing rain shower and luxurious spa bath. Enjoy the feeling of ample space with majestic high-vaulted ceilings. Venture outdoors for more sprawling living space, a swimming pool in the middle of your own private jungle.

Aqua Retreat from $

Splashes of red on canvas. The soothing blue of the ocean surrounding. Clinking glasses and relaxed conversation fill the air, punctuating the clear night. Moving the party outside, a dip of toes in the pool twinkling hypnotically with lights, mirroring the sky above. Dinner is served by candlelight, aromas tantalising on the breeze, fresh seafood grilled just to perfection. Each sensation to be savoured, a wish that time would stand still.

A one-of-a-kind palatial hideaway fanning out symmetrically over the emerald lagoon, the Aqua Retreat features two master bedrooms, each with its own entertainment system and minibar, ensuite bathroom perched above the water, and private outdoor lounging area. Entering the central living area, high-vaulted ceilings invite a cool breeze, leading out to a covered dining area on the deck comfortably accommodating a party of six. Take in the magic awakening of sunrise from the cantilevered infinity pool with Jacuzzi enclaves, a sweeping curved edge designed to maximize ocean panoramas.

Celebrity Retreat from $

Anticipation as you carefully tread across the stepping stones of the Zen pond, the sound of water trickling. Hand-carved doors slowly pushed open to reveal a sprawling wonder – days of exploration and bliss await. Run across your private lawn to dive into the ocean just steps away, surreally clear and then sky blue. Emerge to discover a pair of majestic Grey Herons silhouetted against the skyline. Experiences that take your breath away – both above and below the water’s surface.

A sweeping oceanfront playground hidden amidst lush foliage, the two-storey Celebrity Retreat houses three bedrooms catering to parties of up to ten. Both downstairs bedrooms boast an outdoor bathroom set in its own courtyard, the master bedroom with the added surprise of a private swimming pool and sala.
